Tweet updates vs. Facebook
I know many of you are using both Tweeter and Facebook.
I wanted to know how people are using them together. I noticed that many of my friends update their Twitter account with the same exact updates on Facebook, so it almost makes Twitter just a streamlined version of their Facebook updates.
Others use Twitter and Facebook differently.
I am just now starting to understand how I use them together but was wondering what others think.
For me, Twitter get's general updates about things I am doing and Facebook get's more personal updates because I only accept friends and family on my Facebook.
Many times I follow companies on Twitter or other people who have a similar general interest so I am careful to not make my Twitter updates too personal.
How are you using them?
I'm not using Twitter as much these days but the plan is to use it as my more "professional" space. Facebook gets the personal stuff.
I use the selective twitter app in Facebook to update Facebook from Twitter only when I want that to happen.
I use twitter to update my facebook status. My tweets also go into FriendFeed.
There is a great Facebook app called Selective Twitter. This pulls in any tweets that are tagged with #fb into Facebook. It can get a little annoying if EVERY tweet posts to Facebook, so this is a nice way to be more selective.
LinkedIn just announced a similar service that uses the hash tag #in
So I've had my twitter sync'd to my Facebook well over a year now, and I'm nearing the point where I'm considering changing the sync so it doesn't update my fb status without a #fb hashtag.
Reason being is I've developed a Twitter persona per say and there are specific tweets that appear to be jibberish to those reading my updates on FB. Also, There's a separate audience, and I've found I'd rather tweet about some topics that would stir debate (in a negative fashion) if it was on FB.
Great comments so far. Vin is the one who is making me use Twitter more. :-)
I want to use Twitter for more general updates and Facebook for personal updates. Many of my tweets go to Facebook but not all of them and updates that I consider personal go to Facebook but Never on Twitter.
I think this guy has the right idea.
What happens if YouTube, Twitter and Facebook merge?
